Ray - this could be a problem on our end. What browser and operating system are you using?

I use contextual menu by control clicking on the mpg2 file>save link to disk. I've saved 20 or so mpg2 from the old archive site, and converted several to DV format in Cleaner5.

I havn't tryed to convert these .php files, which may convert just fine. I was just hoping for a familiar file format that works for people who are editing these shows into their work, in Final Cut Pro, et al.

Arggggh! I just tryed a test in Cleaner5 to see if I could decompress these *&%#ing .php files and no Cleaner config would recognize this .php format. Where the hell did you come up with this one?

What is wrong with using a statndard, easy format that professional editors can actually use. I know there has always been a bias toward viewing these files with windows based machines. But I fact, there are 10:1 more Macs in digital video editing.

I love these films and wish I could use them more, but I spend more time dealing with them than if I just bought library of similar ones.

HEEEEELLLLLLPPPPP
thanx

Ray - for starters, what happens if you don't use the context menu (i.e. just click on the link)? If this doesn't do what you want, try renaming the .php files to .mp2 (or whatever extension you want).

Whoooooooaaaaa! typing different letters at the end of a file name will not change what type of file it is......!!!!

The real question you need to ask, is, how did these files, that worked just fine from the Perlinger site, get changed into .php???

If you clink on the link for mpg2, your computer will simply attempt to load the file into what every viewer you have set as the default viewer. I'm trying to download the file, then convert it into a .dv or .mov file in Cleaner5.0.2 so that I can edit it into a show that is 720x480 @ 29.97.

As you can see, it is more complex than you imply.

Loosing faith,
Ray

rename the file to .MPG

they are mpeg files with the wrong name!!! a php file is a result of the browser messing up the filename during the download.

they are mpeg2 files.

call it video.mpg and it should work

I successfully opened php files--they were recognized as mpeg2 by both QuickTime 6 and Cleaner 5.1, all in OSX on a G3
